The market for print steadily expanded throughout the eighteenth-century Atlantic world thanks to printers' efforts to ensure that ordinary people knew how to read and use printed matter. Reading is and was a collection of practices, performed in diverse, but always very specific ways. These practices were spread down the social hierarchy through printed guides. Eve Tavor Bannet explores guides to six manners or methods of reading, each with its own social, economic, commercial, intellectual and pedagogical functions, and each promoting a variety of fragmentary and discontinuous reading practices. The increasingly widespread production of periodicals, pamphlets, prefaces, conduct books, conversation-pieces and fictions, together with schoolbooks designed for adults and children, disseminated all that people of all ages and ranks might need or wish to know about reading, and prepared them for new jobs and roles both in Britain and America.

Grossdruck "Frankenstein" erzahlt die Geschichte des jungen Schweizers Viktor Frankenstein, der an der damals beruhmten Universitat Ingolstadt einen kunstlichen Menschen erschafft. Die Handlung wird durch eine Mischung aus Briefroman und klassischer Ich-Erzahlsituation vermittelt. Viktor Frankenstein erzahlt dem Leiter einer Forschungsexpedition, zugleich Eigner des Schiffes, das ihn in der Arktis rettet, seine Geschichte. Der Roman wird so zu einem Lehrstuck, gibt Frankenstein doch deutlich zu verstehen, dass seine Erzahlung auch eine Warnung an den Zuhorer und damit auch die Leser sein soll: Er warnt vor einer entgrenzten menschlichen Vernunft, die sich selbst zu Gott macht und sich anmasst, lebendige Materie zu schaffen. Die Figur des Viktor Frankenstein ahnelt damit sowohl dem 'literarischen' Faust als auch dem Prometheus aus der griechischen Mythologie. Weitere Klassiker unter: www.buch-klassiker.de"
